Skyros marble was extensively used in Greece (entrance of National Bank of Greece, Athens) and throughout Europe, especially in Britain (i.e: buildings of Anglo-South American Bank (Old-Broad Street), the Anglo-American Oil Co. (Queen Anne’s Gate) and the Roman Catholic churches of Peterborough and Londonderry). Since the island had specialized stonecutters it also served as a worksite and deposit for blocks of other stones from other islands to be shipped for the Greek and international market.

The end of the marble extraction on the island came with the Second World War (1939-1945) when the British company had to cease its activity in Skyros.
